The Plaza de España ("Spain Square") is a semi-circular brick building, with a tower at either end, located in the Parque de María Luisa (Maria Luisa Park), in Seville, Spain. It was built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, which was held in the Andalusian capital.

The Plaza, known as "the Venice of Seville", is a landmark example of the Regionalism Architecture, mixing elements of the Renaissance Revival and Moorish Revival styles of Spanish architecture.

Its proportions are lavish. It has a total area of 50,000 m2 (538,195 sq ft), without a doubt one of the most imposing plazas in Spain.

In front of the building, following the curve of its façade, is a 515 m (1690 ft) canal crossed by four Venetian-style bridges representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain (Castile, Navarre, Aragón and León), and in the centre of it all is the Plaza itself.

The building has a ground level portico and first-floor balustrade with balconies stretching along its length. The many arches and columns with brightly colored, painted ceramic tiles, along with the red brick facade and surrounding gardens, make this construction one of the most impressive in the country.
